Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

0.307 is the Mean.

0.058 is nothing but 0.307 - (lowest value)

Let the lowest value be -x

0.058= 0.307 - (-x)

0.058 = 0.307+x

x= 0.058-0.307


Hence lowest value = - 0.249

Let the highest value be y

-0.249 + y /2 = Mean

-0.249 + y /2= 0.307

-0.249 + y = 0.614

y = 0.863


 - 0.249 < p < 0.863
